Word of Encouragement #2

“Please Pray”

   Please allow me to say, “thank you” to everyone that attended one of the informational meetings that took place March 19th through March 23rd.  The meetings were a blessing for those of us that presented and I    appreciate the overwhelming support during those meetings. It is my hope that if you did not get to attend one of those meetings that you have been able to pick up a packet that contains the information from the Follow God’s Plan Capital Giving Campaign.  We have such a wonderful opportunity to be a part of this special time in the life of Southside Baptist Church. 

   I continue to encourage you to pray about your role in this campaign.  Please pray daily for God’s leadership in your life with regard to what He wants you to do during this campaign.  We only have approximately four weeks until  Celebration Sunday when we will have the opportunity to turn in our pledges.  It is my hope that you have your  prayer reminder visually located in a place reminding you to pray as well as your “Giving Commitment Guide” that provides scripture readings and the Suggested Steps for Determining God’s Will.

   It is important for each of us to recognize that if we are to reach our goal of  (Victory – $900,000, Challenge  $1,000,000, or Hallelujah – $1,300,000), we must buy-in to our theme:  “Not Equal Gifts, but Equal Sacrifice.”  We must give based on God’s Revelation – “Lord, what do you want to receive through me?”  This approach and        response calls for faith. Through prayer, our giving becomes an act of worship.  It’s important to remember, “All that we have comes from God!”  May God bless each of you as you seek His will for you in this effort!
